Product Description

For millennia, migratory herds of Merino d'Arles sheep and their shepherds have roamed the fertile countryside across France, choosing the high meadows of the Alps during the summer and the lush plains of La Crau when winter's chill hits. This asymmetrical triangle shawl is knit in Rosy Green Wool's Merino d'Arles yarn and pays tribute to the breed with a playful mosaic stitch pattern and contrast of summery and wintery hues.

About the artisan

Melanie Berg

​I’m Melanie and in my real life I’m a former IT specialist, mother of three and a semi-successful housewife. In my secret second life I design knitwear.

I live with my husband and three children in Bonn, Germany, where I spend my time combining colors, shapes and textures into freewheeling designs that are uniquely my own. I’ve been published by yarn companies and knitting magazines large and small, and I’ve also self-published my own patterns and e-books. I love collaborating with creative types from all over the world.
